Benefits For Farmers

This project benefits farmers by increasing household food security through diversifying food production. The project also increases household resilience to economic instability through diversifying production of market-driven agricultural products. Farmers in this project see increased productivity of rural landscapes through the establishment of environmentally responsible agricultural systems and planting trees to improve soil fertility and restore environmental health
